“My hometown? Well... It was just an ordinary village. We were poor... The reason I came all the way out to the city was to make money to feed my younger brothers...”
—Ogier to Lilina in a support conversation
Ogier (オージェ Ōje, translated Oujay in the fan translations) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He is a Mercenary from Lycia hired by Ostia. He can be promoted to a Hero during the game, depending on the player’s preferences.
Ogier joins a band of Ostian soldiers in order to pay for his impoverished family’s meals. He joins Roy's party in Chapter 8 alongside Gwendolyn and Barthe, aiming to save Lilina and defeat Leygance in order to hand the Ostian throne to its rightful owner.
Ogier is a somewhat reserved person, he often comes off as shy and respectful to others, often considering them to be of higher status than himself as he came from a dirt poor family. Ogier is also greatly motivated to train himself in order to protect everyone else. Larum accuses him twice of being perverted in their support conversations, although with her personality, it is unlikely without knowing what Ogier was thinking. However, he is very kind and has great moral obligations.

Joins automatically in Chapter 8 on Turn 6.
Ogier, like Dieck, has overall solid stats and balanced growth rates. However, compared to Dieck, Ogier sacrifices some of his skill and HP growth for a slightly higher speed and a much higher luck growth. Because of this, Ogier usually ends up dodging more attacks than Dieck. However, he joins later than Dieck does, and might not to be up to par with him in Chapter 8. He will be worth using for the early and middle chapters. Toward the end however, his low constitution may make him sub par for a good hero when compared to Dieck (but this could be fixed with some Body Rings). Ogier will be unable to use heavy weapons without taking penalties in his speed, resulting in lower avoid and can stop Ogier from doubling. As Mercenaries, Dieck will swing around a Steel blade (The heaviest sword in FE6, second to only Eckesachs) only reducing his speed by one. The same sword would reduce Ogier's speed by 6. However this could just be convenient as, after promotion, Ogier could be trained in swords and Dieck could be trained in axes; this way, Ogier avoids the heavier weapons such as axes.
Ogier - The Little Hero (小さな『勇者』 Chiisana “Yūsha” lit. The Little "Brave")
- Ogier continued to travel around the world as a mercenary, and his name gradually spread across the continent as a great warrior. Even in his fame, he kept the utmost respect for his comrades in the war, saying that he never would have gotten as far as he did without their help.
“I can't die...”
—Ogier's death quote in The Binding Blade.
Ogier the Dane was a legendary character who first appeared in The Song of Roland, a French medieval series of poems which the Elibe games reference often.
- On the official Japanese website for Nintendo, Ogier won 25th place out of 80 in the character popularity poll for Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. The male-female vote ratio is 2:1. The voter comments seem to generally focus on his modest, brave, and humble personality and his backstory regarding his impoverished family.
